We all have the struggle to keep organized when it comes to blogging, and can become a hassle when its time for tax season counting up those numbers, and finding where to look and keep up with it all. I came up with a great solution for this. I have many places where I keep emails, companies I worked with, and the list can go on, but in reality when it comes down to finding what I need I get lost looking through lots of Google spreadsheets and that can get very tiring let alone stressful.I know you can find great calendars to print out, and place in a binder to help keep organized throughout the year. But when it comes to the actual counting numbers, find emails for re contact and that list can go on and on, you can’t copy and paste the information. This is a very simple yet very organized way to keep on top of everything you need to know. I will show you some great screen shots on this Google spreadsheet I created to help you stay organized, keep track of your numbers, and help with future re contacting for the following year.
If you rely on the pictures to find the date you got the product and you can’t find it by hovering over the picture because you saved it off a platform the easiest way to do so is by: right clicking the image and hitting properties and you will be able to find the date, the picture was taken very simple.
Then after you found the date and time of the product all you need to do is fill in the rest of the boxes. This is a very simple way to keep organized and won’t take more than a few minutes filling out each box.
On the spreadsheet you will find two AREA’S. One that is all about the products info, then over to the right you will find a SPOT for just ad network payments, sponsored payments, and any other payments you made from blogging, and or that you gave to others for giveaway opps, and so on!
So all you need to do is set up a GMAIL account if you don’t already and go to drive area, click the spreadsheet area and fill out across like shown above in the screen shot on how to do this.
